Tires (on the traveling vehicle) that stay filled with air

Prayer Requests:

  • Pray that in the midst of our support raising that we would keep our eyes on the Author and Perfecter of our faith (Heb 12:2).
  • Pray that the summer project bands would have killer tours (see above for what a killer tour is)

God is better than anything life can give us and is better than anything death can take away.
